I have recently sat and listened to a discussion about whether women should mix and match their underwear or wear completely 2 different mixes, so different bra to the different type of knickers. Some of them admitting only wearing matching sets, and some wearing packs and mixing completely.
It kind of got me thinking because I kind of never knew what is ‘right’ and what is ‘wrong’ weather is such a thing like right or wrong? What Does
me, myself and I
I recently spent over 30min with 3 different shop assistant in Victoria secret shop in Arndale, just trying to match the bra I liked with a 3 different types of knickers, thongs, hipsters and standard ones. I am a little matching freak, I do have to admit. I like to wear special something whether I go to work, on a night out or just meet friends. Perhaps, getting pop into a local grocery store- I would sometimes wear I mismatched, but only to just get change back to pyjama once I’m back home. Whether is something more special, or sporty set- I would rather wear a matched set rather 2 different pieces. It would personally drive me mad, but I am designer and I have my own aesthetics whether comes to work I do or things I wear.
I remember when I was around 14/15 years old my mum told me that I should always pay attention to wear a nice and clean underwear not only because if I get last minute to a doctor appointment not be ashamed while I wear something I am not pleased with. My mum was always like my best friend, so I always had the comfort to chat with her about everything and there was never a tabu subject between us. I am glad how she introduced me first to sporty and very in my age at that time styles, and then I could really go my own way and with my own style the further I was growing up. I’ve always had a sense of style whether was about fashion or interior. I think I was always aware and had a clear image of how I wanted to look depends on the occasion and circumstances. So, for me, it’s matching. Same with any pyjamas, I rather match unless it’s a sporty style, then any vest top with baggy bottom would go if I sat at home and watch TV.
Having getting ready with many of my friends, I did notice that some girls, match and some don’t. I didn’t notice if that was a pattern whether the girls were in a relationship or not. Somewhere in along relationships and some just dating and still mix-match. I decided to ask few of my friends, telling them the post idea. One girl who is a long-term relationship said she does depend on the occasion. Most days she would wear perfectly matched just to next day wear completely different. She said, she would mismatch on days, when she does simply things- or doesn’t have any appointments for anything. One of my other friends said she is the matching freak- she has so many different bra’s and knickers and she would never be able to find the ‘pair’ so she would just wear whatever she find clean that morning in the drawer. My another friend said she mostly buys and wear comfortable knixwear underwear as just prefer her own comfort above everything. She said, she has sets of special underwear when she wears them for her husband or very special occasions but that’s about that.
I don’t think the weather is a wrong or right way with this. I don’t think anyone should be judged whether they match or mismatch. It’s apparently common for a single girl to match and relationship to unlatch but speaking to my friends- this is absolutely not the case. Everyone wears what they think is comfortable and can afford to.
